Looking back, I can’t pinpoint what it was that made me say yes to this house. We had looked at so many places and nothing was working. This place had all we “needed” in the house and bonus … the land. We weren’t sure that land would be in the budget, but with this place… Continue reading Remodel Chronicles Vol 1
When Chip yells, “DEMO DAY” it looks super fun … right? I think it appears that way because he only does it for a little bit and it is fun … for a little bit.

It’s exactly what we were looking for, but we sure couldn’t find it.… Continue reading Finding our New Home

I hate keeping things from people I care about and the year was full of secrets. Now that things are done, and we are moving… Continue reading Big Changes

FAMILY TIME!!! Life has been chaos since Hurricane Harvey. Most of the time I think my life is a hot mess, but since the storm, it is just pure craziness!!!
